In some aspects, a subset of profiles may be determined that satisfy merging criteria, where individual profiles include a plurality of data fields. At least one value in a first data field that conflicts between at least two profiles may be identified. Next a merged value may be selected for the first data field based on data deduplication criteria, where the data deduplication criteria includes at least one indicator of accuracy of values of the plurality of data fields. As a result of a determination that at least the subset of profiles of the group of profiles meet the merging criteria, at least the subset of profiles may be combined into a combined profile using the merged value.

  • Patent number: 11935317
    Abstract: An embodiment of the present invention provides an information processing apparatus that is capable of generating information about contents of a written work more accurately than conventionally possible. The information processing apparatus includes a determination device, a selector, and a generator. The determination device determines whether a first object and a first property that are mentioned in a first electronic document and that are estimated to be in an association relationship are in accordance with a definition of the association relationship between an object and a property. In a case where the first object and the first property are determined to be not in accordance with the definition, the selector selects, instead of the first object, a second object that is in the association relationship with the first property. The generator generates relationship information indicating that the first electronic document is related to the second object.

  • Patent number: 11861301
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and computer system for grouping parts. Sets of unigrams are generated from text in part lists for parts in a family of parts using natural language processing, wherein a set of unigrams in the sets of unigrams represent components for a part in the parts. A document term matrix is created using the sets of unigrams. The document term matrix describes a presence of components in the parts. A number of unigrams from the document term matrix that has occurrences in the document term matrix that are greater than a common design threshold is removed. Removing the number of unigrams from the document term matrix forms a processed document term matrix. The common design threshold identifies a level of occurrence not useful in differentiating the parts from each other. The parts are clustered into groups using the processed document term matrix.

  • Patent number: 11849183
    Abstract: A system and method to tag portions of a video with an access-control-list (ACL) for those periods of time (e.g., video segments, series of video frames, etc.) within a video that require elevated permission to view or access is provided. At playback time, the access-control-list is dynamically enforced in real-time to ensure that a user viewing or editing the video has permissions to view upcoming portions of the video. When a user has insufficient permission to view a portion of the video, a filler frame, blurred content or blank frame is displayed in the place of the actual video content. Audio may also be muted or beeped out during the periods of the video for which there is insufficient permissions.

  • Patent number: 11847806
    Abstract: Scene text information extraction of desired text information from an image can be performed and managed. An information management component (IMC) can determine an anchor word based on analysis of an image. To facilitate determining desired text information in the image, IMC can re-orient the image to zero or substantially zero degrees if it determines that the orientation is skewed. IMC can utilize a neural network to determine and apply bounding boxes to text strings in the image. Using a rules-based approach or machine learning techniques, employing a trained machine learning component, IMC can utilize the anchor word along with inline grouping of textual information in the image, deep text recognition analysis, or bounding box prediction to determine or predict the desired text information in the image. IMC can facilitate presenting the desired text information, anchor word, or other information obtained from the image in an editable format.

    Abstract: A Bloom filter is used to track contents of a cache. A system checks the Bloom filter before deciding whether to prefetch an address (by hashing the address and checking a value of the Bloom filter at an index based on the hash). This allows the system to utilize more aggressive prefetching schemes by reducing the risk of wasteful redundant prefetch operations.

Transactions of the group are monitored for a redemption of the promotion. A redeeming member's transaction is modeled and mapped into a multidimensional space and transactions for customers not included in the group are modeled and mapped into the space. A neighborhood of the redeeming member and select ones of the customers not included in the group are detected as emerging from the space. Most similar customers to the redeeming member are determined from the neighborhood and a preconfigured number of the most similar customers are selected for inclusion within the group for the campaign. This process continues until a goal of the campaign is reached or the campaign is ended.
